Since May 2019, we started planting dense native fast-growing forests that become completely maintenance free within 3 years in different areas in the city of Beirut. We recently won the D&AD Future Impact award and the iF Social Impact Prize, for our project "Beirut's RiverLESS Forest" where we restored the forest ecosystem by planting 5,800 native trees & shrubs in 2,200sqm of degraded land near our city's most polluted river. We will continue to restore the land around the Beirut River in partnership with our crowdfunding partner, SUGi Project.
We are restoring the ecosystems that previously used to exist next to the river, using the Miyawaki Tecnhique, which is a proven Japanese technique used to create forests in all different ecosystems around the world.
